Brake Shoe Replacement (Rear) Service & Cost

What are the Brake Shoes (Rear) all about?

Brake shoes are found only at the rear wheels in cars with a drum brake system. When you step on the brake pedal, brake shoes press against the brake drums to cause friction that slows down the car. Brake shoes usually last twice as long as brake pads.

Keep in mind:

  • Both brake shoes should be replaced at the same time.
  • Damaged brake drums and leaky wheel cylinders can sometimes cause damage to brake shoes, so those elements may need replacing as well.

How it's done:

  • Inspect brake shoes for contamination and thickness.
  • Replace brake shoes if faulty.
  • Adjust the brakes.
  • Inspect springs, backing plate, brake cylinders, brake drums, and emergency brake cable.
  • Lubricate the backing plate.
  • Perform basic safety inspection, including test drive.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get the brake shoes inspected and measured once a year. To inspect brake shoes, the mechanic will usually have to take the tires off. If you are getting a brake service, and if the brake shoes are still good, just have them cleaned and adjusted. Get your brake system inspected if the brake warning light is on. If the shoes need replacing, we highly recommend ceramic brake shoes.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Shoes (Rear)?

  • Noise from rear brakes.
  • Hand brake does not hold.
  • Car shakes upon braking.

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

Very pleased with the service. Came on-time (in fact checked ahead if he could come a bit early). Patrick took the time to look at the vehicle, and was very thorough in explaining the issue, and fixing it. After the service, he took the car for a drive, had me test drive to notice the difference, and did a general inspection of the vehicle, and suggested what might be needed (nothing urgent). Would highly recommend him - and hope I don't need another service anytime soon - but if/when I do, I know exactly who to reach out to at YourMechanic.

William showed up early, inspected and confirmed the issue, and replaced my battery. William is very polite and pleasant to work with-- I asked him to take a look at my brake pads, which he did and confirmed that they did *not* need to be replaced-- refreshing since some folks will suggest unnecessary work! Overall, five stars, very happy with the service.
